FACULTY   

As we re-build our programming moving out of the pandemic, we remain committed to equity and inclusiveness, especially for those who are marginalized, and understand that the pandemic has hit some in our community harder than others. We will continue to offer scholarships and find a spot for anyone who wants to dance!

Our organization is a non-profit and our staff are hourly employees. Their contribution to the vitality of our lives is hard to quantify: beautiful movement and music sparks our imaginations, gives us meaning, helps us understand our world and gives us great personal satisfaction. Please consider a DONATION as we work to remain open through rebuilding our enrollment.
